LESS TALK...LESS MISTAKE





Why?


We should know when to hold our tongues.


Let us pray…

Our Heavenly Father.Please discipline my tongue and learn to use it well and right.  In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Lesson Learned:
Talk sensibly.

  1. Totally agree. Sometimes, I still regret having blurted out something that I shouldn't have. Still need to learn more discipline.

  2. I totally agree! Even though I try to think before talking sometimes out of impulse hurtful words still come out without realizing and later on regret that I ever said that.

  4. The Bible contains great reminders for us in how to live our life in happiness and peace.

    This is so true and one of those things that I need to hear everyday.

  5. i am actually trying to practice this in all the aspects of life. i always reminds myself, if what i had in mind is positive, share it to the world. if it would turn the sky darn, hold your tongue!

    1. As they say, Practice makes perfect and I am pretty sure you would come into that perfection. God bless!

  6. So true! It's just like my favorite quote which is also the prayer I think about every time I feel bad, "Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth."

    1. the "hand over the mouth" made me imagine how God could be smiling in doing this like saying " Oh, my talkative daughter!" I can see myself in that position too.:)

  7. i totally agree, too. hurtful words are things that you can never get back. and the damage and hurt it will cause the person will always be remembered. it's always best to pray and ask God to always guide your every words.

    1. What you said was very true, Van. Hurtful words do hurt more than a knife specially to a very sensitive person. God indeed is the answer for us to be helped.

  8. me too agree with your post, once you said unkind words mahirap na bumawi, we should be prudent

    1. Yes, Maxine. It is really hard to take it back but we thank the Lord for giving us a chance to ask forgiveness and hopefully with an apology that comes from the heart and true..God would sooth our pain and forgive.

  9. This is something I totally need to learn. If we all thought before we spoke, there would be less arguments and hurt feelings.

    1. Same here, Marie. We all need to learn specially to a talkative and frank lady like me. I even read a book on taming tongues and I followed and tried...and with God help..I saw a big difference on what it can do. Very positive.

      Burahin
  10. that's always my mantra when everything's falling out of place.

  11. It's true, that is why we have 2 ears and only one mouth.

    1. yeah...it is really noisy if we have to mouth..I can't imagine how I would look like with that?? :)

      Burahin
  12. I am guilty of this. In my anger, I sometimes lash out words that I do not really mean. I'm doing steps to think a thousand times before I say something, and to hold my tongue when charged with emotions.

    1. Good deed in taking steps and holding tongue..I am in 100% support in your aim in doing it...ahh..patience..patience..

      Burahin
  13. I agree with this one...a shallow river is always the noisy one whereas a deep river is quietly running.

    TumugonBurahin
  14. I so agree! That's why I prefer to keep quiet when I'm at the height of anger. I might say something I'd regret later. :)

  15. Less talk, less mistakes. A time and place for everyone.

  16. It's good to talk and express yourself but sometimes it is much better not to talk. Like the saying 'choose your battle'. Talk when you know you can win the battle but keep your mouth shut when you don't know much.

    TumugonBurahin
  17. I so believe in this. Things should be processed first before uttering any word. Because those words, you cannot take it back anymore. :)

    1. Plus also, we cannot cover up our sins by talking and talking. It will only reflect how low the person is.

      Burahin
  18. I agree on the quote, especially if you are mad, as you can not take back what you've said while you are mad..:-)

    1. Yes, our emotion is at its height with anger and we create more sins if we keep on talking.

      Burahin
  19. true! words are sharp and can put on a scar on us.. we should think before we speak :)

    TumugonBurahin
  20. Correct! I agree. Just keep quiet to avoid committing more mistakes :D

    1. and we cannot cover up our mistakes by talking more. Wise people tend to keep quiet and think of a way to correct the mistake than cover it up by being noisy.

  21. Amen and more of us need to learn this... When we are silent, we see and learn more... TY! :-)

  22. i totally agree. think not once, not twice, not thrice but rather several times before you actually say/post anything when your emotions are high. if you have nothing nice to say, better hold your tongue instead.

    TumugonBurahin
  23. I am a firm believer of the saying "If you have nothing nice to say, bite your tongue and move away."

    TumugonBurahin
  24. true, we should be very careful with our words to hurt our friends and relatives

    false if the people talk less or mum towards the government, not demanding and protesting for their rights

    TumugonBurahin
  25. I'm trying hard to put this thing into practice, especially when I'm angry.

  27. perfect example for this quote is my father. he is the exact opposite of my ma because ma is loud and talkative while pa is more introspective.. i guess they compliment each other.

    1. I imagined your father like FPJ..man of few words and a lot pf patience.

  29. Beautiful thoughts and so true. We should closely watch what we say in anger, especially with our kids around. I noticed some moms venting their anger on their poor kids...

    Glenda, thank you for your words of comfort re my dad's passing...Somehow, I believe he is in a better place...I didn't want to let him go because he fought valiantly, but I knew in his last moments all he wanted was to be reunited with my mom...when I finally said "I trust in you" to Jesus and stopped bargaining (like if dad gets better, I will do this and do that...) was I able to let go...

    1. Our good Lord would put His hand on your shoulder to comfort you at all times. I'm happy that you trusted our Lord Jesus because He really knows what is best for us. I made this quote long ago..wrote this in a notebook.."Letting go of something that is holding one back from doing what is right is victory."
      Now, You have learned to let go...I can say you are victorious! God bless!

  30. I think this includes in what we share in social media. Think before we hit that post button.

    1. also true...whatever we have spoken, we have to think about it many times because we cannot bring it back. Sometimes, the more we try to explain and some even bend situation to explain its side, more sins are committed...we should learn to hold our tongues at the right time.

      Burahin
  31. Tama Tama Tama.... because most of the time spoken words cuts deeper. It we can't say anything good all we need to do is just keep silent. I've learned this from my nanay. To avoid any arguments better keep quiet and listen. :-)

  33. Thanks for sharing! I've learned the importance of this lesson just recently, and I am glad God whispered to me to just hold my tongue, even if people try to stab me with their hurtful words. :)
